How to create users in OpenDJ for SUP
This document describes how to create users in OpenDJ in a way that a SUP instance can make use of them for device user authentication. This document is not about installing OpenDJ, nor does it cover the topic of how to configure SUP to make use of OpenDJ as an LDAP authentication provider.
Set up OpenDJ
Logon on the OpenDJ
Start the control panel and logon on. The control panel can be found in the bat directory of the OpenDJ install directory.
You get an overview screen presented that lists some server details of the current OpenDJ server.
The important part is at the bottom: Data Sources. The Base DN you have defined during OpenDJ installation has to be there and needs to show that at least 1 entry is there. If there is not Base DN or no entry, consult the OpenDJ documentation on how to create them. Don’t panic, it’s not complicated.
Create a new OU in your Base DN
This opens a popup for managing the entries. Select the Base DN and create a new Organizational Unit (OU).
In the dialog enter the required data. As the OU will store user data, a good name is users. In the bottom you can see how OpenDJ will create the OU: ou=users,dc=sup,dc=com.
Afterwards users can be added to the OU.
To add users to the OU select the New User option.
Enter the user information. These are going to be the device users for SUP. If you are using simulators, you may add user names that help you to identify the simulator.
You can also create a group for your devices, like Android, iPhone, etc.
That’s it. OpenDJ is configured to have OU, users and groups.
